"Brilliant magenta. Vibrant, mineral-laced red berry and floral scents show very good clarity and a subtle herbal element. Brisk and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Discreet tannins lend shape to the finish, which lingers with very good, spicy intensity."
